In India, the Juvenile Justice Act of 2000 was the more extensive field of counteraction of Delinquency by acquiring youngsters needing care and assurance inside its ambit just as making arrangements for managing kids who are affirmed or found to have submitted an offence. This specific paper analyses the hypothesis and practice of the laws identifying with the adolescents who have submitted offence and makes just context-oriented references to the arrangements managing the adolescents needing care and assurance”. Kids who have committed a crime in India have for some time been perceived as not quite the same as grown-ups or adults who have committed the crime even after the appearance of British laws. Separate disciplines were recommended for kids who submit offences under Hindu law, just as the Muslim law. The cutting-edge history of Juvenile Justice in India starts from the extended period of 1850 when the principal law was instituted managing kids younger than 15 years who submitted Petty offences or were tracked down transiently. This paper will revert into the historical “backdrop of juvenile law in India beginning around 1986, in an undertaking to characterize and set the extension for the term juvenile, with an examination of adolescent law in different nations for auxiliary research questions.
